and this senate in an exceptional way. his name is bob dole of russell, kansas, who served in world war ii, was severely disabled, came home uncertain of his future but dedicated his life to public service. i don't know how many weeks or months or years are left in bob dole's life, but he has made the passage of this convention on disabilities his life's work of the moment. we owe it to bob dole, to all of the disabled veterans like him who stand with locked arms begging us to pass this convention, we owe it to the disabled people across america and around the world to stand up once and again for the rights of the disabled and for expanding opportunity not just in america, but across the world. people say we are an exceptional nation. there's a little bit of aoeg ism in that -- egotism in that statement, but i believe it is -- i ask for 30 additional seconds. but i believe it is factual that america is an exceptional nation twhe steps forward in the -- when it steps forward in the belief that freedom, liberty and opportunity should be for everyone within our country and around the world. t

treaty to protect the rights of the disabled. this is like a christmas carol. there's poor bob dole off his deathbed in a wheelchair -- >> he's been ill yeah. >> stephanie: last week he was reported to be not doing well. >> slapping him on the back. no, we aren't going to vote for it. it is crazy. >> stephanie: a christmas carol. they're so mean. i hope they say hello to the dodo birds. >> they're pushing bob dole over a cliff in his wheelchair. >> stephanie: caroline says one of their excuses that threatened american sovereignty and the endangered home schooling because it would allow american government to impose new laws on disabled home school children. there is no wording that hints that either one of those things could be true. for some of the senators the real reasoning was because they believe the treaty is part of a vast conspiracy. >> vast conspiracy to tell us that the world is round. everybody knows that ain't so. we could fall right off. >> stephanie: bob dole came to show his support for the treaty.

. >> despite bipartisan support and a dramatic appearance on the senate floor by former leader bob dole, just out of the hospital. >> more than a dear friend, bob remains an authentic hero to millions of his countrymen, someone whose personal example of war time sacrifice was equal, if suf a thing is possible, by his service in this body and is respected wherever people value political courage and civility. >> in the nearly 30 years that i've been here, i think this is the first time i've seen a former majority leader of the united states senate come to the senate floor for a vote and certainly the first time that i've seen it happen when he had every right to be at home at age 89 taking care of his health. but that's not bob dole. this is about people. this treaty helps thousands of vets, men and women, who paid the price of devotion to our country with their limbs. >> president obama just now on bloomberg tv on why he hasn't sat down with the speaker to hammer out a budget deal. >> unfortunately, the speaker's proposal right now is still out of balance. you know, he talks, for example, abou

and bob dole and danny, they served next to ordinary people with 8th grade and high school educations. for me, all of the things that have been said about warren i could repeat and it would emphasize what you already know about them. the reason why i martin so much is the reason i just stated -- the reason why i admired him so much is the reason i just stated. i never met a man in all of the time i have served with the single exception of daniel inouye who had the grit -- in ordinary americans. the thing i like best from warren is when he said, just tell them the truth. that is what he always did. he told the truth. we all have a slightly different perspective, his honesty could be searing, but his compassion was always profound. that is a rare combination for any man or woman. he believed that the coolest lives are often told in silence. he would come up to you and say, i was flat wrong. let me conclude by saying that one of the tests in all of my years is that for warren rudman, he said the client of the realm is your integrity, and it is. -- there is a coin of the realm that is you

other countries. that's why bob dole and captain dan pe berzynski want us to appe this treaty. i've heard nothing from the other side that outweighs the reality of that consideration for persons, not just veterans, all persons with disabilities. what's really at stake here is big. the outcome here will not, despite the fear, it's not going to change one election here in the senate. it's not going to decide one of the primaries that i fear are distorting the politics of our country. but you know what, mr. president? it will decide whether some people live or die in another country, where there is no accountability and only united states values and standards are the difference to the prospects of someone with a disability. in some countries, children are disposed of, killed because they have a disability. our treaty can actually help prevent that. in some countries, children do not get to go to school and certainly have no prospects of a future simply because they are born with a disability. this treaty will help offer hope where there is none. the united states could actually sit
